Mercy Thompson Series

Mercy Thompson Series

Mercy Thompson #1-12 by Patricia Briggs (2006 – 2020)
Fiction | Paranormal Thriller
5 stars

The Mercy Thompson series currently includes 12 books with the latest installment released this year (and I think there may be more on the way?) but for this review I’m only covering the series as a whole. I was able to get my hands on all twelve books from my State’s Digital Library but I thought it might be way too much to write out twelve entire individual reviews and figured I’d consolidate it into a series overview. There are also more books in The World of Mercy Thompson which expand the world to include Mercy’s first encounter with Adam and her new job as a mechanic as well as to follow a new pairing, Charles and Anna (also called the Alpha & Omega series).

Maas’ books A Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass (fantasy).
